Hardback, in Fine condition, complete with dustwrapper in very good condition. First edition, pp viii, 247, with notes, sources, bibiography and index. Until the discovery of North Sea oil in the early 1970s, Britain had virtually no known oil of its own. Yet by 1914, British or part-British companies were producing oil in Persia, Russia, Romania, Mexico, Peru, Burma, Borneo and the USA. This history explains how that happened and how the two main companies, BP and Shell, remained world leaders in the oil industry, and examines how the industry has evolved and its role in the Second World War and crises such as Suez and the Arab-Israeli wars. S8.
